Hey all, Im using Java with OpenGL (using lwjgl) to create a 3D shooter. Its come to the time where i need to implement some 3D models into my game, ive found some good ones on the internet in .3ds format. i have no idea how i can implement these models into my game?? Im really not sure what steps i need to take. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Nick

I know there are several 3DS loaders available for OpenGL, but these are probably c++ only. You may have to read the file data yourself. There are probably some c++ tutorials out there that you could convert to java.

Basically you have to transform all of the data in the file to actual vertex, material, teture, and animation data. I don't have any experience with 3DS, but it shouldn't be too hard to extract all the data.
